Abstract

Describes research within physical science courses for preservice elementary teachers, where groups of students had access to computers, examining how computers were used as representational tools to support meaning-making conversations within groups. Notes how special computer simulators facilitated student groups' construction of robust conceptual models. Discusses how the computer was embedded within classroom activities. (SM)
